Growing Places Indy’s mission is to empower people to cultivate individual, family, and community wellness through urban agriculture, access to fresh local food and mind-body education.

The Tuesday after Thanksgiving has been dubbed giving Tuesday, and it’s touted as a “global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world.”

Victoria Beaty, executive director of Growing Places Indy joined us today ahead of the holiday to share how you can give back to her organization.

The Indy Night Market is back for Fall and with a new location! This event brings together everything local when it comes to the Indiana food scene.

Victoria Beaty, executive director of Growing Places Indy, Chef Whitney Barnett of Cibo Catering & Events, and Nicole Kearney, owner of Sip & Share Wine, joined us today to tells us all about what you can expect from them and other vendors. They also made CIBO Lavender Lemonade mixed with Sip & Share Wines Intention Riesling, BBQ ribs with Conjure Zinfandel and Gratitude Red Blend.

The Fall Indy Night Market will take place on Saturday, September 25th from 6 p.m. – 10 p.m. in the lot space located behind 2955 N Meridian St. The rain date is scheduled for Saturday, October 2, 2021.

The event is a food, arts, and culture festival that brings to life Indy’s food scene, including farmers, restaurants, chefs, and food entrepreneurs in one place in the heart of downtown Indianapolis.

Growing Places Indy is on a mission to enhance and create an equitable food system in the Indy community and foster local entrepreneurship.

The Indy Night Market hopes to inspire Indianapolis residents to invest in the local food ecosystem and create a stronger and inclusive community.

The Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority provided a matching $15,000 grant through its CreatINg Places program, a place-based crowdfunding grant program.

The Indy Night Market strives to encourage Indiana visitors and residents to explore the historic areas of the city through the event series.

The series celebrates the city’s diverse food culture by providing an opportunity for local entrepreneurs to grow their businesses, creating a catalyst for community engagement, a creator of jobs, and economic growth.

By creating a night market, Indy residents will get the unique opportunity to celebrate the diverse food scene in Indianapolis while contributing to the city’s food system and community well-being. With a food festival event series, community members will better understand the importance of accessing affordable fresh, local foods and explore the city’s history.
